The tens of millions of visitors to Paris each year are comfortable with the idea of using the city’s public transport, and often shocked by the traffic congestion on the French capital’s major roads. Parisians have a very similar experience.
The city’s ancient streets create unique challenges for the adoption and development of future mobility, but very real change is under way as the city’s vehicular emissions and congestion problems result in ever more stringent restrictions and future vehicle bans.
Autolib—the now-defunct electric car-sharing project that folded in 2018—left a legacy, physical and otherwise, that continues to influence future mobility developments in Paris. Its installed charging infrastructure is being upgraded and a number of automakers and other mobility service providers are stepping in to try to succeed where Autolib ultimately failed.
